Google has just recently announced Android open-source mobile phone platform. This has generated some brainstorming all over the gaming industry. The first ones to come up with a game that utilizes the platform’s capabilities were Wi2P – its still in the making but what a game it is! Wifi Army is combining the GPS, camera WiFi and google maps to a game with unlimited players.
The player is looking for another registered opponent using google maps and the GPS receiver, Once the opponent is found the player has to capture his picture using the cellphone camera to “shoot” him down by actually taking a picture of him, Once the picture is taken, it is automatically being uploaded to Wi2P servers using WiFi for verification. If the picture is verified with some facial recognition algorithm then you are the winner.
The coolest thing is that while chasing your pray, someone might be chasing you! You could also join a group of men hunters and look for victims. The whole world is your battlefield!
After registering, you can be contacted by any other player within a 300 foot radius, which is the limits of WiFi range (300 ft) to find other players and then sends out a game invitation. You then select which player you want to play with, and if they accept, you’re both sent pictures of each other, and the game starts. Each of you trying to be the first to take a photo of the other person. We are waiting with anticipation for the game to be released.

Overall, the game is amazing! You’ll going to have so much fun.
